Primo Bib Short

You can never go wrong with a classic pair of black bib shorts, but some rides call for the Euro flair and bright comfort of Santini's Primo Men's Bib Shorts. Fashioned from Thunderbike Power fabric, these bib shorts are stretchy enough to allow full freedom of movement while also providing a touch of fatigue-fighting support for your muscles. The fiber strength and knit of Thunderbike also happen to give the shorts a heightened level durability and resistance to abrasion.

In addition to its supportive characteristics, Santini chose Thunderbike for its highly breathable and fast-drying capabilities to deliver the ideal mix of support and temperature control. Inside, Santini trusts its GITevo chamois to lend the right amounts of cushion and support as you spend hours in the saddle, with breathable foam arranged to move with you as you ride and a gel core providing added long-mile comfort.

  • This cycling bib short adds a pop of color to any ride
  • Stretchy, slightly compressive fabrics fight off fatigue
  • Gel core chamois provides supportive comfort without extra bulk
  • Silicone leg grippers hold hems comfortably in place
  • Lightweight mesh bibs keep things cool on hot summer climbs
  • Item #SAN006S

Just finished my first ride with these shorts. I agree they run a bit small. I am 5'8" 144#, and bought the M Marine, and they are snug - most noticeably for me in the shoulder strap length - i could use a few more inches there. But on my ride they felt great - more on the minimalist side then most of my other shorts, very light and thin fabric, and the shammy rather thin, but I felt it plenty sufficient to keep me very comfortable, which for me is one of the very most important functions of a good bib short.

So See-Through They Should Be X-rated

Familiarity:
I returned this product before using it

Runs small

The shorts, although on the smaller side (order a size up for Santini but not this model), are so see-through that they are totally unacceptable. Obviously they are not transparent, but they are sufficiently see-through that one can see enough that should make most cyclists most uncomfortable. Unless you are an exhibitionist, these shorts are not for you. I had to return them. I have no doubt that Competitive Cyclist has received a number of these as returns for this reason, hence the half-price. As far as the other reviewers who have not mentioned this problem, I imagine that they tried these on indoors where there is not that much bright light, and cannot see how they look in the crotch area when outdoors in the bright sun. Competitive Cyclist should not be selling them without a disclaimer that they may be uncomfortably see-through for some cyclists.

By far the best I’ve tried

I got the 3 colors (1 for a friend), I’ve used them for indoor training and during the summer for weekend rides and they are just great, impressed with Santini quality (at least the ones I ordered), they fit true to size as per the chart. it’s a pity the XS it’s already sold out

For some time I had only used Giordana bibs, but recently found Santini and love them even more than Giordana. The Santini has an excellent feel and quality, the pad works really well and the size is spot on for my short and athletic build. Most bibs tend to be a little long in the inseam, but the Santani seem to be a little shorter so they fit right. I mostly wear them for Mtn biking, they hold up well for short and all day rides, the pad is better than Girodana for rougher rides. I have a red and blue pair, I dont find them very "revealing" as another reviewer noted, in terms they are no more see through than a black pair, but they are bright colours that buck the black spandex crowd.

Great bib shorts, excellent chamois, great price. I went on several rides in my first pair and liked them so much that I bought a second pair. Very supportive. Nice elastic cuffs.

Wore these for about 600 miles so far. Comfy, but I have a wear spot from saddle. Sadly, these will last one MAYBE two seasons. I'm in-between a S and M. Stuck with the small because the actual short fit better. Bib straps are a bit tight when standing in the small but in riding position it's great.

I cannot comment on the comfort of the shorts, as I did not get past the initial try on before noticing just how sheer these bibs are. I ordered the red color and it is very surprisingly revealing, even in the non-mesh areas. I would be far too embarrassed to wear these during the day and will unfortunately be returning.

I noticed the same thing with the red, however, the chamois covers all of the important spots. I didn't have an issue with this. I can tell you that the marine blue does not have the same issue as I have a pair of those as well.

I've used Santini bibs for many years and they are my favorite of all I've tried. I really love the Twist Gel chamois, it works the best for me. These are advertised as Primo bibs, but the tag says Gara. Doesn't make a difference to me, because these are the best bibs I've ever used. Super comfortable, fit is great, chamois is perfect, fantastic quality. I'll be getting another pair soon.

Very happy with these especially for the lower price. They seem to be well made and I've found them quite comfortable on longer rides. I will say that they run a bit smaller than most brands...I originally ordered an XL (I'm 215lbs with 36" waist, usually wear XL in Pearl Izumi clothing) and had to return it. Way too small. XXL was good for me.

Of the 3 pairs of bibs I currently own, these are the ones I'd suggest to a friend... My other pairs are more expensive and cheaper - these are in the sweet spot of price and quality. The fabric is good, doesn't feel like I'm going to tear it when pulling them on in the early morning. The suspenders are solid and well ventilated - the chamois is high quality. Overall, I think this is what most 3-4 days per week cyclists should buy. Right amount of money, right amount of quality.

While bib shorts should be tested on a few rides I gave these buns a trial by fire by wearing it the first time at a race. These fit really well and I find the amount/density of the chamois just right. As a sprinter/crit racer these support my thighs really well

I purchased a red and a black pair. Quality garment. Excellent fit, great chamois. At this price I think I might have to buy two more pairs. I usually use Assos and Castelli. These are every bit as good!

It feels like a quality bib when you put it on, with a nice chamois and comfortable leg bands. I'm 5'9" 155lbs with an average build and purchased a small, and if I was any bigger by even the smallest amount, they would be too small. The material in the legs and straps have plenty of stretch, but I can feel the straps pulling on my shoulders a bit. I'm keeping them because i'm sure they'll stretch out.

I received them yesterday and immediately tried them, they fitted great; I used them this morning for a 40 miles indoor training and they are the most comfortable bibs I have ever used.

Wondering if you might be able to help me out... I'm trying to buy some cycling bibs for my husband. He is about 5'2" and wears an XS. He always struggles with the legs being too long and hitting him right at the bend in his knee. Do you think these would work, or do you think he'd still have the length problem? Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.
